Does anyone in this community have any experience using RE2MV or Biofat to rip the 3D models from RE 1.5? (scrapped early version of RE2)
I'm specifically trying to rip Elza Walker but I've had no luck.
Biofat either crashes, or just outputs a 1kb .TMD (empty model file) when I run PLD extract. RE2MV viewer refuses to open the .PLD files from RE1.5, and just says "Invalid PLD". Same for the .EMD (NPC and enemy) files. In fact I can't get RE2MV to work for RE2 (PS1) either, but for whatever reason it works with GameCube RE2 which I extracted with Dolphin.
For reference I'm using the MZD (Magic Zombie Door) public release of RE1.5, and I've tried a couple different versions of it, all hit this wall. I'm using jPSXdec to unpack the BH2.bin into folders to access the model PLD files. And I untick "Save as Raw" while extracting which I've read is necessary. Is jPSXdec causing the problem, since it happens with PS1 RE2 roms as well?
I'm kind of amazed that I can't find RE1.5 Elza and Leon 3D models anywhere on the internet. If anyone has a private dump of unedited models I would also settle for that! Biofat is frustrating and finicky, and RE2MV is awesome, but just won't open RE1.5 for me.
Nevermind. I figured it out. Just had to redownload BH2.BINex and try again. That's the proper way to extract the rom. Tried it before and it didn't work so well. Tried it again now and it worked for whatever reason. Cheers!
